on Amazon.com continue to claim they are the Original Chi Machine. THEY
Cheap imitation chi machine websites, such as U.S.
Jaclean, promote multiple imitations using
information about the original Sun Ancon as
leverage. Most imitations have multiple speeds which
do not give the same benefits as the original and
have proven to be detrimental to the spine, the
knees, and some have increased blood pressure. The
original was created with only ONE speed after
decades of research by Dr. Inoue.
Most of the ''5 Best Chi Machine' review websites do
not feature the original Sun Ancon, because they
are being paid to promote and sell imitations. Those
that actually mention the original Sun Ancon offer
all the details of the original, deceptively
inferring their imitation is the exact same.
December 2015 - False
claims, illegal use of trademarked name,
deceitful use of TV show.
Imitation chi exercise machines or passive
exercisers as they now call themselves,
continue to surge thru the market, as fast as
one machine is discontinued, another pops up,
but numbers have leveled out, and such is the
nature of any business. The problem is that
imitations continue to persist in illegally
attaching the trademarked name 'Chi Machine'
to their unit.
2) Three imitation companies have
proclaimed themselves to be the most superior
out of all the imitation machines (including
the original). Here is one imitations quote
"the most advanced model available globally".
Another imitation company quotes "superior to
the original Chi Machine in numerous ways" but
declines to illuminate. This same company uses
the Dr's TV show
video clip, failing to mention it is the
original Sun Ancon Chi Machine and not their
One imitation company states " Early chi
exercise machines were designed for the
typically smaller and lighter body types of
Oriental people". First there is no such thing
as earlier chi exercise machines, there was
only one, and it has a trademarked name, The
Chi Machine from HTE. Secondly, the Chi
Machine was NOT designed specifically for
'Oriental' people. This claim insinuates that
Orientals (insulting label), are all the same
race (insulting), with no differences in
height or weight, whilst also insinuating that
"non 'Orientals" have different anatomies,
being bigger and heavier. Whilst the USA in
general appears to have an obesity challenge,
many people will definitely take offense. The
Original Chi Machine was created for ALL
body types and all ages.
The Chi Machine is registered as a medical
device in three countries because the
specifications of the patents, the
oscillations per minute, the precise and
deliberate single speed and the swing travel,
all directly relate to the highest medical
benefit the Chi Machine will give to the human
body with no chance or injury or any negative
3) There are numerous
false claims that can be read on Amazon.com,
in regards to the original Chi Machine. Here
is one such false claim: "Their original
patent was for a variable speed unit, but once
we came out with the Chi Vitalizer, they
decided to differentiate by claiming there's
only one speed that works". The original Chi
Machine has NEVER had more than one speed, and
the imitation Chi Vitalizer was created many
years later, having multiple brand labels,
names and prices. Why do companies lie?!
Imitation brands 2015 include:
Chi Exerciser, Chi Vitalizer, Chi
Energizer, Chi Swing, Swing Master,
Footshaker, Zen Chi, Evergain, Passive
Exerciser, Oxy-Flow, Chi Flow, Zen Chi, Surge
of Chi, Aussie Wobbler ... Amazon.com and eBay
have an abundance of imitations to choose from
with a plethora of false information and
The Sun Ancon Chi Machine made a
fourth TV SHOW global
appearance on a show we cannot actually name for
legal reasons (watch the TV show clip to find
out), but if any imitation machine
attempts to use the video footage or make any
reference in any form after the show airs, legal
action will be taken by the TV show producers.
TV showcase of
the Sun Ancon Chi Machine,
the REAL Chi Machine.
All the chimachines on
Amazon.com are imitations. The real Sun Ancon is
listed, but every time we check it is 'sold out' -
this is a scam to get the buyer to purchase an
imitation, because the Sun Ancon Chi Machine is
not sold on Amazon.com by HTE.
Many people who saw the Sun Ancon Chi Machine on The Doctors went to Amazon
and purchased an imitation machine without knowing
they had not bought the real deal, the Sun Ancon
Chi Machine. Imitation companies then proceeded to
scam the public using 'The Doctors' TV show video
footage, falsely claiming it as their own

website - Chi Machine International - was
the individual responsible for "The Doctors"
TV showcase of the Original
Chi Machine (known as the Sun Ancon) and
also the TV showcase in 2013 on the Dr. Oz
Please feel free to notify
us if you discover a company claiming their
imitation "chi machine" was showcased on
either of these shows, because
the producers will take legal action as they feel strongly about
deception and false
October 2005 - Decline in
Several imitation 'chi machine' websites no
longer exist, but there are still quite a few
that persist. HTE the exclusive distributor of
the Original Sun Ancon, are aggressively
pursuing these deliberately misleading merchants
for copyright, fraud and patent infringement.
March 2004 - Gimmicks
Many of the imitation chi machines have now
resorted to having gimmicks attached to the
machines including infrared features, heating
pads and magnets, besides adding multiple
speeds. Quite honestly, a pogo stick, a hula
hoop or a trampoline are safer and more
beneficial. If you cut costs with your
health, you pay a non-refundable higher price
in the long run.
To compare the
REAL Chi Machine, the Sun Ancon, to any existing
imitation machine, is the same as trying to
compare a go-cart to a Ferrari. We know not
everyone can afford a Ferrari but when it comes
to health, anything fake or synthetic is bad
news and has consequences. Corners cannot be cut
Fit For Fun, the
health and consumer magazine in Europe, tested
the original Sun Ancon against the imitations.
Sun Ancon won hands down.
Some websites have re-worded and changed
deceitful information since first being
presented here. To date, all of them still
remain medically unproved with no clinical
research unlike the Sun
Ancon Chi Machine.
Everyone is entitled to sell any
product they choose, but selling products under
false pretenses in order to make a profit
- in this case at the expense of your
health - is dishonorable, greedy and plain wrong
when it comes to something as important as your
health. If an imitation machine harms someone,
breaks down or does not do what the original
does, this is a bad reflection on the original
WHICH WORKS and was created to seriously help
people. The consumer is advised to always
research products in depth and draw conclusions
to instantly recognize the
Original Chi Machine, the Sun Ancon, formerly known
as the Sun Harmony:
Chi Machine is known as Sun Ancon, as inscribed on the
bottom of the machine, and also proven by the company green
square logo found on the
timer and on the machine itself.
The ORIGINAL Chi
Machine is distributed globally and sold
exclusively by HTE.
The ORIGINAL Chi
Machine has NO variable speeds.
They say imitation is a form of flattery.
Well, would you like to see a remake of the
classic 'Wizard of Oz' or 'Gone With The
Wind' or 'The Titanic'? Sometimes there is
just no duplicating the original.
